Synopsis

When they say you will fail...fail to listen.

The adventure continues in book two of the New York Times best-selling series from the fantasy author who is a legend herself: Tamora Pierce.

A powerful classic that is more timely than ever, the Protector of the Small series is about smashing the ceilings others place above you.

As the only female page in history to pass the first year of training to become a knight, Keladry of Mindelan is a force to be reckoned with. But even with her loyal circle of friends at her side, Kel’s battle to prove herself isn’t over yet. She is still trying to master her paralysing fear of heights and keep up with Lord Wyldon’s gruelling training schedule.

When a group of pages is trapped by bandits, the boys depend on Kel to lead them to safety. The kingdom’s nobles are beginning to wonder if she can succeed far beyond what they imagined. And those who hate the idea of a female knight are getting desperate - they will do anything to thwart her progress.

A powerful classic that is more timely than ever, the Protector of the Small series is about smashing the ceilings others place above you.

In a landmark quartet published years before its time, Kel must prove herself twice as good as her male peers just to be thought equal. A series that touches on questions of courage, friendship, a humane perspective - told against a backdrop of a magical, action-packed fantasy adventure.
